Why do I like it?
Well, I think it looks quite convincing for a non-op/non-hormone gal! My face is nicely made up and it even has a dewy glow. My natural hair wig is looking good. The makeup has made my jaw look much pointier and less square. All in all, I would be disappointed if I did not mostly pass looking like this. It is a strong face; but not an unfeminine one.
I have blanked out my eyes, not because I am ashamed or because I think people will recognise me; I am very sure they will not (hi Veronica!), but because I do not want to take the chance of somebody with facial recognition software outing me when I am not ready. I am not out to family and friends... yet! I want to ensure I do it on my own time.
I have a question for those who read this blog. I have seen many of you express in writing how you love being a woman. I love being a woman, too. I exist as a guy, but, as a woman I live! Us non-op/pre-op non/pre-hormone people seem very positive and joyful about the experience of being women. Is this the same for post-op people?
I only ask as my wife does not go around every day (unlike me!) saying things like, “I just love being a woman!” Are us part-timers living in a permanent pink cloud. Do the post-ops lose the pink cloud ecstasy that we have? If so, why go full-time or even have the op? Just askin!
